Physical Therapists

Physical Therapists are experts in movement and function, and are trained to evaluate and treat changes in “normal” movement that can cause dysfunction. They look for abnormal movements that can be caused by many things, including:

  • Loss of strength or range of motion
  • Muscle and tissue tightness or restriction
  • Neurological impairments
  • Balance problems
  • Poor postural alignment or body mechanics

Physical therapists use a variety of treatment techniques to normalize these movements to return the patient to maximal functional tolerance.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists focus on assisting people who have mental, physical, developmental, or emotional disabilities. Their goal is to help clients have independent, productive, satisfying lives. This can be achieved with treatment by:

  • Improving their ability to perform tasks in their daily lives and working environments
  • Helping clients develop, recover, or maintain daily living and work skills
  • Teaching clients to compensate for permanent loss of function

Occupational therapy gives people the “skills for the job of living”.

Speech Language Pathology

Speech-language pathologists, sometimes called speech therapists, assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent disorders related to speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, and fluency. Examples of dysfunctions they see are:

  • Inability to produce speech sounds or cannot produce them clearly
  • Speech rhythm and fluency problems, such as stuttering
  • Voice disorders, such as inappropriate pitch or harsh voice
  • Problems understanding and producing language
  • Cognitive communication impairments, such as attention, memory, and problem solving disorders
  • Swallowing difficulties
